Show Respect

This weekend will be the opening of the 2010 Kentucky rifle season and everything is getting right. If you hunt property where other hunters will be, remember to show respect to your fellow hunter. Don't get greedy and place your stand in another hunters comfort zone (like 160 yards across a field from you). This action shows what type of hunter you are. Not only is it wrong, it can be dangerous. You never know what can happen. People get excited and everything they know about hunter safety and gun safety goes away. Make sure that you personally thank the land owner for allowing you to hunt there. I have even helped out with farm work or bought the owner a gift of some sort. A simple thank you can go a long way also. If you see that some one has left a gate open or has trashed the property up make sure you go the extra mile and make things right. Let the owner know whats going on because it only takes one bad hunter to blow it for everyone. Be a safe hunter and show respect to everyone you come across in the woods it will pay off even if your in-law has placed a stand across the field from you. Keep in mind that hunting is a sport, hobby or maybe a passion for some hunters. So, don't blow another hunters day by being ignorant!!!!
